How to Become an Actor
Share ThisPrintable Version


by Sarah Bennett
Most people believe that acting is all about exhibiting a natural, instinctive skill that you are born with and hold inside you. In reality, acting is actually a trait that can be stimulated and sharpened with the proper training. While thousands of actors work around the world on a daily basis, there are but a few exceptional actors, who by exhibiting their natural talents have made it big in tinsel-town. Do you have what it takes to be one of these exceptional actors? Do you have the determination and desire to give it your all to achieve your acting dreams, aspirations and goals? Or are you simply looking for a short cut, which will most likely lead to uncertainty and disappointment. If you are willing to stay focused and work hard, you can make it as an actor in showbiz. Read on, if you'd like to learn the practical steps you should take if you want to become an actor or actress.


It is good to have a formal education in acting and drama. There are many schools and universities where one can get trained in acting. If your quest for the theory on acting is insatiable, then there is the Master in Fine Arts for you. While such formal education in acting can teach you the fundamental acting techniques and even history, heritage, and acting traditions, nothing is more important and provides as much training as actually performing on stage in front of a live audience. Therefore, to truly complete your education, it is imperative you begin practicing and performing wherever and whenever possible.

You don't need to move to a major city to find outlets where you can practice and improve your acting proficiency. You can start acquiring your practical on-stage experience in your very own home town. There are plenty of opportunities to perform in community, school and church plays. Don't simply dismiss these plays as amateurish before you give them an honest try. You'd be surprised how many low-budget community and school plays are professionally produced. Plus, many local talent scouts regularly attend community theater productions since many will be friends with the theater's producers and directors. You'll also find it's simply great fun to part of theater or performance troop.

You may also try getting involved with your local college or universities' film or media department. You may not get paid, but you can get yourself on film which could be seen by other casting directors and talent scouts. Plus, you'll get a copy of the finished film that you can use as an audition demo video to send to talent agents.

Once you've decided to give acting in your local community theater a try, you'll of course need to know how to go about auditioning. Scan your local newspaper's entertainment or arts and leisure section for notices of open casting calls. Another simple and more direct way to track down audition information is to call the theater's ticket sales phone number and enquire about future auditions. Some other ways include searching the Internet and also trying to establish contacts in the local school or university where there may be open public auditions that are used for community outreach programs.

In spite of these efforts, if you are still not able to make it as a performer in the play, don't give up yet. Volunteer to help behind the scenes in roles like costume, set design or lighting as this may look good on your resume as creditable experience. It is interesting to note that many great actors started by working behind the scenes, so keep trying. (continued...)

kyle, just get a bt more confidence; it is essential to this career path and any others, too. Acting and performing has alot to do with self-confidence, and in order to have that you must have high self-esteem.
You shouldn't worry about age too much. I know it's hard to wait, but it will probably be easier if you do it after the GCSE,or maybe even after you're done school. If you want to act in films, they usually have private tutors on set, but it gets hard to keep up with schoolwork, because you're working days. While you're waiting, I'd suggest taking a drama class and acting in a play or two if you're not already. always keep your eyes open for opportunities, and grab them when you get them. they may not come straght away, but if you keep looking, you'll find one.

I have always wanted to act since the age of 4 and i am now 16.
Ive always felt that acting was my life. Im deep in love with acting and I know that I have talent. Ive been in this acting production for 3 years and I absolutely love it! I dont care about the fame, or the money. It comes from the heart, acting is so important to me. I can spend days watching movie and analyzing actors' perfomances and I study acting every day. My acting coach says that the first time he saw me act, he was blown away by my perfomance. He also said that I have a lot of talent and that I have the determination to audtion and to persue an acting career on television or on the big screen. But I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere. There are no acting agents in my town and if I tell my parents that acting is what I want to do in life. They'll just laugh at me.

Hi I'm Harrison and i've always wanted to be an actor since I was 9 now I'm 14 and I've had some chances when I was younger but I got stage fright in the audition and that agency ended up being bogus I guess. I want I know whether I should start soon or around adulthood like 17-19.Anyway I would realy like to become a at least amateur actor,but hopefully find by big break,like a regular on a sitcom when deserve it. I just need some ground to start off with, I don't have anything to put on my resume but am willing to learn and gain expirience from other actors.
Thank You.

Guys, if you want to be famous, you gotta start off small. I mean, i'm 14 and very passionate about acting, but I know that 99% of the actors aren't famous at all. I would never act to become famous, and the liklihood of that happening to anybody, regardless of talent, is extremely low. Plus, if you want to be an actor on stage, even though its kind of sad, you gotta have good looks...

I understand that this kind of work can be near impossible to get in to, but I do have what it take's. I'm not asking for a hand out, I'm just asking for a chance. If I could somehow be observed by someone deeply involved in acting than I can assure any casting director that, this is all that I would need. I'm still 19 right now, but time is passing me by. I can listen, and if it's actually needed, I can learn. I will give anything at all for just a chance. If any casting director does not like me than they will lose nothing, but a few moment's of their time. Please give me a chance to prove that I am what I truly believe that I am...
An actor.

I am 16 years old and have recently discovered my love for acting. Tom hanks is my idol, i think he is truly the greatest figure in cinema. I dont sing, but people tell me that i'm pretty good at acting. I am more funny than i am serious, but that can be worked on. (irrelevant: i can juggle!!!! i just learned 2 days ago!!!!!! how awsome? it's just another part of my goofy personality.) i hope to make a career out of acting someday. it is truly my passion, along with making videos, writting, drawing, and playing basketball. why am i even typing this? i have no earthly clue. thanx for reading.......if this even gets read. ha ha ha ha!!!!!!!!! cya!!!
Posted by Tiff (2008-12-16) 684
oh...wait....is this like an application to become an actor? i have been reading the previous comments, each one begging for a chance at the biz and screaming in bold lettere I'M REALLY TALENTED AND WANNA BE FAMOUS!!!!!!!! It would be nice to be famous, but would probably get old with time. I like acting just because it's fun.....that's it.....it's just fun. Any other reason to become associated with the biz is useless. Get into it because it's fun. If you just wanna be famous, you could always throw your shoe at President George W. Bush!!! ha ha ha.....but seriously, i enjoy the thrill i get when people laugh and clap after i have performed a little monologue for my drama class. Again, it's just fun. Don't jump into it for other reasons. "Once you find something that you enjoy, God will make a way for you to persue it. And that's your calling." (that sounded really good)ha ha ha ha

Don't you know you are supposed to be writing to acting buisesses or celebrities? They can help you and get auditions and tryouts. Even if you aren't chosen, you'll STILL be famous! (But please don't use them just for their limelight!)

If you don't have experience, you should become a movie extra. No Experience Required! That's the best way to get experience and build your resume. It's also the best way to get Discovered! Check out Moviex.com for more information.

hmm so many petie things of people asking to be a star right? Well i have always wanted to be a preformer. I feel the best form of acting is probabley via stage work.If you can do that then flim will be esay compared to that. Even if getting in the flim itself is difcult. If you want to be an actor then hear this most actors don't make it big. Me i don't care about that i just want to act. So before you set you'r heart on acting think.

I'm 28yrs love acting and dreaming everyday that my dream will come true.is any 1 can help me 2 fullfill my dream
Posted by Angel (2009-03-20) 1170
I am 22 yrs old and I have always been interested in acting. It isnt the money or the glamour that draws me in, it is being able to become someone that you are not. Feeling things that you would not be able to feel doing any regular job. When I watch a movie or television show or even read a book I can become each character and feel what it is that they are feeling and I want to be able to portray those feelings myself and be able to become each part that I am givin the opportunity to play. I havent went to school to be an actor, I havent been acting any plays around town because I do not live in a town where much of that happens. I dont know if it is too late for me to fulfil my dream or not but I really hope not because as each day goes by my hope to fulfil my dream gets larger. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank You

i really want to become an actor. i know you hear that day in day out but it's differant for me. i live in a deprived neighbourhood and i am, i hold my hands up, mixing with the wrong kind of people, so i think acting is a escape clause. i've not long left in school, around a month to be precise, and i have been looking at the college courses but when you have a reputation like mine it's mentally tough to find the courage. all other acting school's i've looked at outside of my city require tuition's and, like i said, i live in a deprived neighbourhood, so i can't afford to attend. is there any way the government or charity organizations help? or is there anyone i could talk to to help me? any information will be great! thanks

im called nabeel and im 16. i really love acting and i think im able to act.
Posted by nabeel (2009-04-14) 1298
i dont believe in any of this. Because most of the actors i personally talk to, just got what they wanted because they tried. You dont have to take classes, read books or get an agent. It all on trying hard and believing. just believe in yourself have a good headshot and keep yourself clean... Just try and belive.

I'm 16 and a junior in high school never acted, but I'm very good at making people laugh and i was thinking of doing stand up/ Acting/ improv for starters and getting my name out. Me and my family are low on income I'm not looking at acting as a way out, its just that i have a desire for some reason to act. I have no previous experience in acting. I'm new to this game. But is it to late to start at 16? Ive done my homework and i see that most "actors" are born with middle class parents who can afford acting lessons and taking them all over to make their kids known. My mom and sis are all i have. And we have trouble making it. But through our odds we're making it. Also say i did get it, my family cant move to Hollywood or New York. If your in a low income family then what happens were do you go? Anyway I'm in band right and i play the drums i was going to change one of my electives to drama class. And beginning my career their. Before i wanted to be an actor i wanted to be a doctor or a video game designer. I figure that if i had to choose between those i should choose the one ill most enjoy. So what if you were in my shoes. what would you do?

P.S. this letter is to help me figure out what i should do and thank you for your time.

Hi :)
Im 12 years old and i've always wanted to be an actress ever since i was 6 years old. I do have confidence in myself and its something that i have always wished to be. The only problem there seems to be is that i really dont know where to go audition. I even traveled to New York to pursue my career. I also need to know where to get an agent and i already took acting lessons back in San Diego. Can you help me find where to go and how i can get an agent please.

I am homeschooled and can no longer be in plays at school. I was going to go to college, but I don't want to wait. I want to do it now.

Hi I am Dallas Branham. I am going to be 16 on December 6th. I go to a small school in Ayersville Ohio, so I am not given the chance to show off my talents. Being an actor means EVERYTHING to me. It has been my dream for quite sometime. Making great music/being in a movie is GREAT publicity....but it's not everything. I also enjoy acting and singing. So the fame is not everything to be an actor. Oh well, I will never get it. I am so depressed now...HAHAHA GOT YOU...see I just ACTED that I am a depressed person when actually, I am a very excited and preppy person. Well...If anyone knows any Talent Agents or something, could you PLEASE contact me and let me know?...I have myspace. So just search me on there...Later people! =]

Hi my name is Ricky,

I've always been interested in this area, I've always had that urge to give it a go but I've never had that confidence to go for it, however recently I've realised I'm never going to be content unless I give it a go. I just need more self confidence and earn some qualifications that would be looked highly upon, however I'm 19 years old and not too sure how to go about it, I've looked into local acting schools etc, so I was just looking for some additional advice if possible :)

Many thanks,
Rick

I've always wanted to be an actor, the money part never occured to me until now, I'm thirteen years old and would love to become one, but my parents think I've always wanted to be a teacher. I'd love to be a teacher but would rather be an actor-or writer. I was raised not to be conceited or think I'm superior to anyone, but aso to follow my dreams and hve confidence. I cant tell you how good I am because I honestly dont know, confindence is something I don't have a lot of, for fear that I will come off as concieted but I know that I can have confidence-I just need to know if i really can do this. Thats all.

I have always wanted to be an actress, but never have had the courage to do so, but my heart is definatly set on this.
My personality is very bubbly, i have loads of friends so am a very compatible person, and acting is where i can express in ways i don't normally, it make me feel like a better sort of person.

hello, I'm a 17 yr old male, graduating high school and going on to college, and ever since meeting my favourite actor Corey Haim who starred in the film The Lost Boy's, and passed away on March 10, 2010, i have been fascinated in trying to get an acting career, which i know in this worlds time and the economy isn't easy to get any job of any kind.... but i have been noted to be a hard working determined young man which means by all means necessary i am willing to go through the hours and hours on end of training for this career and try my hardest to succeed which is very very likely for me because of my constant determination to succeed.....but if there is anyone out there who has any ideas for me to try to kick start with this or where to go to try....it would be much appreciated
any thoughts or ideas....try to find me on facebook name: Cory DeLaughter send a message

thanks in advance.



p.s. i live in a very small town called Grass Valley in California so if there are any opportunities anywhere in that region or around the Sacramento area please inform me. thank you.

Hi I'm Jonny and I have always loved the craft of acting. I'm 13 and live in Hawaii but am moving to Dallas and Baltimore soon. I have been the protagonist in 2 school plays. One of which I memorized about 100 lines in a 45 minute musical play. We played in front of the entire school and the parents. I loved the experience. I currently have a 3.8 out of 4.0 G.P.A. so grades are not a problem. I am caucasian, 5 foot 2 inches, and weigh 105 pounds. I am physically fit enough to do about any action role too. My main talents are in comedy and action. I have the passion and drive to excel to the top of my potential, I can do whatever it takes, it is my passion. I would appreciate it if someone would contact me. Thank you.

Hello. My name is Melanie , I'm 14 and going into 9th grade. I've been acting since the 5th grade. Acting is a big part of my life and I would love to do it for a carrier and I know that a lot of other people want to too. My mom isn't really full on support with it because she thinks I can do something better since my grades are really high. I love making people laugh so comedies are my main goal. But I also love playing mean girls/drama queens. I also live in a small town and can't afford to travel anywhere. I plan on getting a full scholarship to an performing arts collage. But If I can't , Bye bye dreams... I've also tried to get to acting jobs by modeling but the only agencies near where I live is asking for all this money that i just don't have. I never get Big parts in musicals either. . .I really just can't sing. <- I'm pretty bad at it.

Hey,
I am 14 and English and it is my dream to be an actress/singer more than anything. It would be absolutely amazing if i was able to get in the film industry.I do realise that there are millions of people who want to become an actress but if someone could just give me a chance and contact me that would mean the world. So here is a few things about my skills: I have been getting distinction in almost all my singing and drama exams, I have been parts and a couple of main parts in our plays at school and will be doing some theatrical camps. i also write my own songs.I have confidence in front of people and love interacting with others. I do believe i could become someone big but i don't know how. So please could someone help. Thank you for your time and for reading this xx Good luck if you have the same dream. :)

Hi, My name is Sean, I'm 42 years old white male, 6 ft, 195 lbs, and I live in San Jose California.
One of my friends Raymond has been telling me for many years that I should be getting into acting, and specially acting by playing a bad guy in movies. I am told that I have a very loud voice, very intimidating loud voice, I can make quite a bad looking, mean looking or scary face when needed. I am sure that I could play a bad guy, or part of a bad guy gang in movies.
Please reply and let me know if and how I can do something about this.
Thank you

hey, you probably get this a lot but i was actually thinking in pursuing a career in acting. You've gave the best advice I've heard so far but the thing is that the community plays in my area are not so good to tell you the truth. I do not have any experience but know what kind of acting i would like to be in. I was going more for the tv films or shows rather than theater plays. i live in New York and I'm guessing to start out going for auditions you'd need to go to some type of acting classes. My mom, however doesn't want to spend that much money and I don't have since I'm still not even in college. I was thinking about roles in shows like the ones in abc family or any type but definitely not reality shows. I feel like i'll have to start out young because chances for succeeding are higher when you start out young. Any advice of how I could start out?

I'm thirteen years old and I love acting. I always wanted to sing or act on TV an well I found this site, and thought maybe I can get some help with that. I'm tired of waking up and having no excitement, life's short and I need to make a move. I'm determined and I won't die on this earth without being on TV, atleast once. HELP! PLEASE :)

I think acting and singing would be a pretty cool career. I am inspired by people such as Adam Stanler, Marilyn Monroe, and Lady Gaga. I have sang in the school talent show (Rolling in the Deep by Adele) but I have really bad stage fright. If you could help me with that so I could land the role of the Red Queen in our play Alice in Wonderland I would be very grateful.

Many people in this world wants to be actresses/actors but few are able to do so. I like acting but most of the time is pretty shy about it. In most of my school years I take acting classes or so called theater/drama, but for to this year i' m not taking acting classes. In the acting classes i took before this year has showed me that i actually was pretty good with acting i always thought that i never thought i could do something as to acting. i remember once in theater we had to get partners and do duet acting along with miming, and on the first like of my duet i missed up and for some reason i just continued acting seriously i kinda lost it there i didn't know what to do but everything just came out as i switched the whole scene around. I though everyone notices but as i finished no one came to me and said anything neither did my teacher in fact she never found out. Next year I'm thinking about auditioning for my school play. Most of my friends and i like acting. One of my friends even made the school plays 2 times while another made back stage crew. To be precise acting can be in one of my dreams category, but the truth is even if thats what i mainly strive for my parents don't support it at all. In my family what your parents want you to do and be in the future was always something you can never reject. I like acting i' m always hoping that one day i could at least act in a show or play. The reason for why i like acting and how it started was because of my favorite actors and actresses. My forever dream is to act and sing with my favorite stars in this world. The thing that got this dream started was the animes I watched called Skip Beat and Glass Mask. Acting is one of my many dreams i hope to complete in my life even if for a second it would go to no waste. <3 sorry if i wrote to much <3

Hi, my name is Samiyah Roberts and I'm 16 years old. I believe that I have what it takes to become an actress. What makes me so sure? Well I am a drama queen, according to my friends, and I'm also dedicated at whatever I do. I'm very ambitious if you ask me. I think acting can help me expose my great talent in acting. I hope that my dream can turn into my career of becoming a actress. Well I'm not giving up until it turns into a reality. :)

Okay kids, Please go back to school and learn how to spell, type, and create proper syntax in you sentences!!! After you type out what you want to write, read it over so that everything makes since!!! Most of you cant even write? Whats up with that? You want to be an actor and you cant even write a decent sentence???


You want a job in acting? Learn that become an actor, you need to become the corrector that you are portraying. You need to become the corrector, this takes discipline. I know a lot of you are saying or think that you need to go to an acting school, hey that is great and a lot of actors go that route and have been successful.

But, most of the actors you see these days just happened to be in the right place at the right time with no formal experience. A lot of our A list actors that we either, have seen or are seeing on Silver screen and the Big screen, either know somebody in the industry or were in the right place at the right time. Think about it, Harrison Ford was working construction building film sets, how do you think he got the scar in his chin? Hey, how about all the rappers that are now working as actors??? They all got themselves into the industry rapping and they knew nothing about acting. What about finding a television network in your area and getting into there page program?

Dont get me wrong, acting at you local theater will help, but also remember that there are a lot of jobs in the entertainment industry. Behind the screen, writing, producing, directing, editing, sound, lighting, photography, special effects, ect, ect, ect, all bring in good money and all very satisfying. First and foremost, get an education, graduate high school!!! During the same time see what you school has to offer that will help you on your way into the entertainment industry!!!

Good luck, and that is what most of you will need unless you already know someone in the industry!!!

Signed,

Someone that has been there!!! And loved it, very rewarding!!!

Hello:
I have always had the dream of being an actress. I have experience with acting. I have been in 4 school plays and starred in 3, have been in choir all my life, and take guitar lessons... I may be also performing on hard-rock cafe. My play director said I was too young to be put in other plays, although she would have let me. The choir teacher says I'm "gifted with the blessing of music". My guitar teacher says she's never seen anything like me. People recognize me sometimes as the "acting girl" or the "singing girl". People say I'm a talented young actress/singer, and that in the future, they would see me in their T.V screens. I started liking acting at the age of 4. I used to watch 'Annie' over and over again, and I sung the songs and acted parts of the movie. It would mean the world for me if you could help me fulfill what I am. Acting and singing is my life. Without that, I would not be Antonia Velez. God bless you all.
